For Students Finding Rooms / Paying Guest Accommodation in Mumbai

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 ·



With the commencement of the new academic year, parents from all across India storm Mumbai for their children’s admissions, and with that begins their house hunting trauma. From our last decade of experience, we know what this trauma feels like. These parents begin to believe, that Mumbaikars- be it their relatives, friends or acquaintances, are the most unhelpful people, while real estate agents make it to the top of their list of Most Unfriendly People in the world.

Now why does this happen? Let me explain you why, through this illustration.

Let us assume there are 1000 students each year, arriving in the city for admission and are searching for accommodation, out of which easily 800 realize that they do not have enough marks to secure admission in a college of their choice and have to return. 
Of the remaining 200 that now have a reason to reside in the city, about 100 would have succeeded in getting accommodations through hostels, around 50 would pile on relatives and friends while the remaining would either manage to get the place through their relatives, friends  and acquaintances or through a broker after much hassles and headaches.
Now these people are very few, so brokers don’t even like to work for these types of clients. 
A Real Estate Broker’s business model is result-based, and not effort-based. They don’t make money by showing properties or accommodation. They make money only when some one finalizes some thing through them and pay them their cut.

Having worked for more than a decade in this sector, we, at RealEstateDealStreet.com, are trying to change this business model. We have the data base of owners which we intend to share with prospective accommodation seekers. You can go and view the owner’s place and close the deal yourself. However, if you would want us to talk to them and iron out differences, we would be happy to negotiate for you. In this process you are directly in touch with owners and at the same time you have an expert at hand. We have a ready questionnaire covering all possible issues between the landlord and tenant, thus saving you the trouble and hassles and most importantly saving your time in this expensive city, where you might be staying at a hotel. 
And what’s more? We can also provide you good references from your acquaintances who took accommodation through us! Check out our website for further details!

Advantages to Paying Guests: - 
You can start the search from your home town, so that even before you come, you have a fair idea of what to expect and what not to.
You save on time, for if every thing goes according to plan, you could move in the very next day.
No begging to brokers, finally.
RealEstateDealStreet.com works across Mumbai so regardless of which area your college is located in, we can find you a place near by. This saves you time on dealing with multiple area-specific brokers! We have fixed charges, unlike brokers who increase rent, to get higher brokerage.


Advantages to Landlords: - 
You only get serious clients.
You can screen them whether they fit your criteria before actually meeting them, something which is not possible when you deal with brokers. It saves your time. Also, nobody will come to know in your building society, that you have a PG, and create unwanted noise, because prospective PGs won’t be accompanied with loud and known brokers!
RealEstateDealStreet.com also helps you doing back ground checks of the prospective PG.
